Postponed Tokyo Olympics hit 1-year-to-go mark -- again

"The postponed Tokyo Olympics hit the year to go mark again, but many Japanese say they should be canceled by Stephen Wade of the Associated Press in Tokyo. The Tokyo Olympics have hit the one year to go mark again, but few are in a mood to celebrate. Tokyo observed the original date a year ago, that was before the covid nineteen pandemic postponed the Olympics and pushed back the opening to July. Twenty third twenty twenty one fireworks cascaded over Tokyo Bay back then and local celebrities unveiled the medals in a highly choreographed show. There's none of that this time. Organizers produced a fifteen minute. No fans event on Thursday inside the new national stadium, screening a video to promote next year's opening. They also teased the presence of the Olympic flame, which arrived in Japan in March and had been hidden away ever since. Low Key event on a rainy day captures the local mood a poll a few days ago from Japanese news agency. Kyodo repeated the results of recent surveys. Japanese are skeptical. The Games should go ahead and doubtful they will. The poll showed twenty three point. Nine percent favored holding the Olympics thirty six point four percent said the Olympics should be postponed again and thirty three point seven percent said it should be cancelled. Organizers and the International Olympic Committee of ruled out another postponement. The Tokyo Games would be cancelled this time if they can't be held

Hey, Remember the Olympics?

"For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage. My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

Remember the Olympics?

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games.

"But with the children thanks the games I have to be rescheduled based on everything that's going on because if nobody wants to go and compete in and nobody wants a gold watch then Tokyo is going to really you know be tanked financially from this so prime minister Shinzo Ave spoke to the head of the IOC and proposed the delay it's going to be rescheduled beyond twenty twenty but not later than summer twenty twenty one now the Olympics have never been to lead up before I thought there was a delay one of the Olympics and forget I thought it was it had to be delayed into October of one year the summer Olympics once I think was in the sixties had to be delayed to October forget why but they were canceled back in nineteen sixteen nineteen forty and nineteen forty four I'm C. nineteen forty nineteen forty four was during divorce will work till so the gains have to be rescheduled to a day beyond twenty twenty but not later than summer twenty twenty one accord the international Olympic committee I guess that we they write the rules as they go originally the rules work you will have to deal with in twenty twenty and they realize well then it one of the summer Olympics if we have to wait till after the summers of the cold so Tokyo governor Yuriko Cole Leakey said vads the name of the delayed Olympics will still be Tokyo twenty twenty well because that's what all the gear and all the you know swag and everything says so it's not going to be called the twenty twenty one I think it's really really important for Olympic staff even number years even numbers on there so he made a comment to reporters or she'd made the comments are part of the vision part minister Shinzo abi spoke to the head of the national of the committee let me see here IOC president Thomas Bach has agreed one hundred percent of the falls from a proposal and then said the decision was about protecting human life fox said the new dates for the new games to be postponed during peace time would be decided by an IOC panel overseeing the gains in Tokyo organizers yeah it's very expensive we've talked about how cities take a big hit whenever they do Olympics because Olympics village the stadiums it's really hard to get your money back Atlanta has a really nice Olympic area it it it has like you know Olympic village and you know you get to see it except I just don't know how much money they make off of that but the average you know state country city whatever it doesn't seem to do well post Olympics from what we understand it's an absolute mess when you have all these consumers come and spend money and then you know they leave so what do not have an Olympics after spending all that money to prepare and it takes years to prepare that alone can just crash Japan's economy without even talking about you know the Olympics or the court of ours so when they see the current pandemic has already helped push Japan towards recession the GDP contracted one point eight percent in the October December quarter an economist at research firm Fitch on Monday revises twenty twenty growth forecast for Japan to negative one point one percent from negative point to and he said the postponement will worsen it significantly and impact their GDP the three point five point eight percentage points hence the postponement would badly affect Japanese consumer confidence they do not know what it would do to the two hundred forty billion yen if Japan has issues then we have issues obviously because we're all you know in an economy together Tokyo twenty twenty organizers declined to say how many foreign visitors expect to visit Japan specifically to watch this one action I remember they still have aftermath of Fukushima not so much a literal radiation aftermath but you don't have a lot of people very excited to you know also go to an area that had you know the tsunami and then you know the nuclear fallout from that so my guess is even if the Tokyo Olympics are postponed I don't believe that it's going to still be as much of a economic you know windfall as people

"You guys. This is such a treat his. You'll know our all star. Washer hot a leak you know. He's like with us from the beginning. Right you guys know that. He's like contributing op ED writer. He's a CNN commentator. It's a big deal to have him calling us from his car. So welcome wash minivan respect and the Dad Boston okay. Here's the amazing thing dear listener. We are joined by his wife. She's a brilliant physician. Her name is Dr Sarah. She's a physician at Georgetown Family Medicine. And Hey you're married to watch you've done this for a while you're the euro. Welcome to the doctor. I thank you so much for having me and I'm calling from the cars. Yes so watches in the fan in our driveway. And I'm in the car in the driveway and they're watching the children from six feet away. This is about as social distancing as you can get this is the most socially responsible podcast in the world amazing amazing and I just love. What was just told me that he wants to do which is to wrap me up in bubble wrap so that. I stay healthy. Thank God I am healthy. In fact I just tweeted out today. I was just like how I'm going to be grateful for having a roof over my head husband. Who LOVES ME? My kids at home. home job. So we're GONNA start podcast on a note of gratitude and I'm just so thankful that was and Sarah are joining. Hulu me because this is a big deal. It's our first time to have a married couple. It's also our first time living through a pandemic so here we are. We're surviving there are now over three hundred thousand cases worldwide with over thirty five thousand Kovic in nineteen cases in the United States making this the country with the third most cases after China and Italy. We're actually just eleven days behind Italy in terms of trajectory. So keep that in. Mind as you guys know. It's putting such a strain on our healthcare system The CDC is telling healthcare workers to improvise when they have a shortage of masks. What we have several states multiple states that have you know basically placed some form of shelter in place or lockdown protocol. I have to say I'm surprised that not all fifty have done it so Sunday night. The president of the United States his name is president trump. You know he said this and it was really it was really It was a moment because he said that the National Guard is going to be deployed to New York California and Washington State. That made a lot of people of color really uncomfortable. Yeah and then also on Tuesday the Prime Minister of Japan. Avi Shinzo he said. The International Olympic Committee will postpone the Summer Olympics. They were supposed to be held in Tokyo this summer. Now they'll take place no later than summer of twenty twenty one so I just want to back up for a moment to understand. And we're we're laughing through this because we're we're releasing and because we're with people care about right now on this past but Every single day it's just like Oh my God. No joke like no joke. How serious diseases and why? We should have taken these measures back in February but Sarah Update us. What what we've learned so far about cove in nineteen you know. I just have to agree with you. I've just say we are already weeks late and doing everything. Normally when you're late to do things it's like. Oh the toll measured in something. That might not be that relevant right now. The the tragedies toes measured in lives loss. So every day that there's a misstep or delay it's going to be measured and more lives lost absolutely horrifying so where we're at right now. I mean at least in the US like you said we actually don't even know the two cases. Those are reported cases when you don't know the real official number because we've been under testing and we haven't been testing and we haven't been tracing and just like the World Health Organization said it took a think about sixty seventy s from the first reported case to reach the first one hundred thousand cases and then after that it took just eleven to reach the second one hundred thousand cases and then just four days to reach a third one hundred thousand cases so this is a horrible buyers exponentially affecting people all over. So this is scary and we are not overreacting or under reacting and as public health professionals. We always say if we do our job right then. People will say that we overreacted. And that's okay because then that means we're all okay but unfortunately that's not the case right now so sir one of the things that we did for this show because we have a real community of people who listen to us right so we're familiar even though we're not touching each other the ask our our listeners to send questions and one of our listeners on twitter reverberate wire asked if it is spreading through for example gas pumps and how long it lasts on surfaces. I mean sometimes when you're seeing this information it's its terrifying how long the virus can last on different surfaces. What do we know is is fact about this question? So we're always finding out new information. This is a new virus. Things are always changing but what we know as of now is it's highly effective so are not is the rate of infectivity of any virus and if it's greater than one then that means the virus is going to keep spreading and if it's less than one that means you're gonNA see decrease in number infections And when it's greater than one what that means is so far the SARS coronavirus two are not is. It's around three so for every one person infected you're likely in fact three other people And this is without without social distancing and all those measures so one of the reasons it's so infectious again. The flu is like one one point five so this is almost doubled infectivity rate of the flu. 'em Is because it does last on surfaces right now. What we're finding is akin lost on cardboard boxes or paper for anywhere up to twenty four hours and it can last on plastic or steel for two three days. Whoa WHOA Yikes. Yeah I want to say based on what I've been reading. The literature shows that that's not the highest rate of transmission can get transmitted that way but the highest rate is droplets through a person to person contact. And there's a small number fecal oral also ooh K. All right good to

"us olympic committee" Discussed on Freakonomics

"The US Olympic Committee was broke and we made hundreds of millions of dollars. It's the infrastructure and people do things like build a new railway to so cheap. Well, that's not like the Olympics that was a fifty billion or whatever dollar railway that people put into the Olympics as that's inherent cost of boondoggle, and you're getting your boondoggles in early now so that they can't better than that. We delayed twenty twenty eight let periscope I and twenty twenty four and we negotiated one hundred sixty million dollars up front so sixteen million dollars a year has been going into doubling the number of kids, who get swim classes, and African American Latino kids over half of them, don't know how to swim, and it's the second leading accidental killer of kids under twelve. So we, we are putting into public good now and main reasons why can get away with it and other places are right to avoid, it is not building Olympic village. We're using UCLA. So we're just renting those rooms were we've got all the infrastructure, the most expensive stadium in human history has been built without public subsidy in Inglewood here for the Rams and the chargers we're gonna use that we have the call a Siham. We have the staple center. So we're just renting the incredible sports facilities. We already have here we have velodrome, we've got tennis court. So most other cities are smart to not bid, but we hope to get the Olympics to kind of chill out, on needing to build so many new things. So the moral of the story is the Olympics should only be held in Los Angeles. One person. I want to ask, and we asked this to a lot of substantial people, what's something that you believed for a long time to be true until you found out that you were wrong. Well, I mentioned it already. I think that was one of those Democrats always thought you can never lower taxes, and I think that I've seen in practice that businesses do make their decisions based on what we're taxes are. That's definitely one. I think the other thing I used to dismiss people's fears, and that let's say in a town hall meeting where people don't want a homeless shelter in their neighborhood, that it was okay to just say you're wrong, or somebody's racist about something this that, and the other, and I realized over time you have to kind of. Understand people's fears that they usually come from a real place. And until you understand that you can't transform. The mayor told us a lot of things about Los Angeles. Any facts, we need to be concerned with. So a couple of things that are interesting. He was rated one of the top five most dateable mayors in America. Despite the fact that he's married to the incredible Amy wake you, I was going to say I'm not dateable at all. I did want to say one thing about diversity, which was interesting. There is a large study that just came out that ranks LA itself, not greater Los Angeles. As the sixty third most diversity in terms of racial, and ethnic. Diversity moves up to the eight most diverse city when you take into account income education, language, industry class age religion cetera. The most interesting thing I think you talked about was how hometown buffets also have diversity. You'll be interested to know that in Canada. Some buffets offer jellied moose knows in Japan, you can get tuna eyeballs, but most impressive was a man in Springfield, Massachusetts who ate all the diversity and was kicked out of a buffet after spending more than seven hours, onsite eating more than fifty pounds of food.

"So the story that I wrote was about is there not a different way. And and there is a different way. So God knows the United States Olympic team has to try different way in scandalous and horrifyingly disruptive to young girls. Absolutely. Absolutely. So are they going to do that? In other words, the UCLA now have a chance to get her philosophy. I mean who runs the United States Olympic team anymore? Most arduous thing. So the US Olympic Committee, and USA gymnastics have each had anybody. Oh, yeah. Yes. And the sexual abuse scandal in USA gymnastics eight there are versions of sexual abuse. Verbal abuse, psychological abuse in a host of sports swimming, speed skating. I. Several other. So it's not unique to gymnastics. But again, the transaction has long seemed to be at the US OC level. If you win medals your methods or your methods. It's not for us to say. So this awareness that they have not only a moral obligation, but a legal obligation to make sure that their athletes are safe is something there are certainly acknowledge ING now and paying lip service to I am not sure that the safeguards are there either at the USOC or USA gymnastics safeguards, and or will to really change this pattern. And I say that because in both cases, the CEO's they brought in have a marketing background, there seems to be this impression that what they have is an image problem that that that they need to reposition the sport to get back the corporate sponsors to make parents feel comfortable with their sports again. I don't I'm just withholding judgement. I'm not at all convinced. I think the. Best safeguard is is openness as an all things. You know, if you're a parent and your child is training has great ability. And and you're kind of over the edge yourself is a parent. You know, that's not good. But if the coach doesn't let you watch practices if it's not open. I mean, that's a bad sign. You know, I think it's time parents be more engaged. Obviously. This goes back to what I said about Mississippi State. This is why I love athletes feeling empowered speaking out. I know I'm running out of time.

Richard cantu. ABC news. Five twenty three now on NewsRadio six ten WTVN news first at five Jay Ratliff, our aviation expert and Jay helped me out. What's with all? These Corentin flights coming into our country. Lights head passengers that were experiencing high fever and were. Basically created a medical precaution. Where the flights were temporarily co-ord- team and the CDC boarded the flights made sure that what they were dealing with. And when they determined. It was not anything more than a flu or something along those lines. The flights were able to the plane having three from Europe in two days makes me think that they are looking for something or are concerned about something as far as maybe a specific threat that they've been able to determine that's causing this type of reaction because it's we we have Corentin flights probably five times a year. But to see three flights all from Europe within two days coming into the United States, certainly suggests to me, and I don't know anything beyond pure speculation here that they are on a heightened state of alert for some reason, and we'll continue to watch and see how things are going and what happens to those planes. I mean, you have people with high fever is it just, you know, the quick scrub. And then the next crew comes on. Yeah. That's it. You know, the thing though, is that's the concern is, you know, most of us have been on a flight Rica some idiot behind you to rose back coughing his head off. And then you get sick two weeks later tavist situation where you're gonna flight for like from Dubai, fourteen hours, and you not only contract something, but you start to show symptoms. The speed of that is what really concerns some of the health officials, and that's one of the reasons they want to check it out in any of those cases like on the line had they not been comfortable with their medical diagnosis, basically told that aircraft to leaf bring another flight crew from Emerton off they go. So, but, you know, fortunately for the passengers in rather short order they were able to determine it was not a medical concern. And they allowed the passengers to eventually. Yeah. That's that's good news. Did I hear correctly? One of the Corentin flights have vanilla ice was on it. Yes. He was comfortably seated I believe in first class not affected by the coughing passengers and coach, but provided many timely updates as to what was. Going on. Well, I guess if you're vanilla ice and getting those residual checks first class is a good place to be right. So then there's this other issue. I think it was Qantas. She was called miss instead of doctor and got a little uppity. Oh, she did. We need a scream track here in the background for them using this word. But yeah, it was a cabin crew of Qantas flight that I guess repeatedly referred to this passenger is miss instead of using her title doctor. She she has a doctorate in philosophy and feels as though everyone needs to address is doctor. She said that this is not about ego. It's about being respectful yet in many were tweets Joshi referred to these highly trained flight attendants as trolley dollies. I don't know if you can say that you're looking for respect not willing to give respect. But yeah, she said that she didn't go to university for eight years to be referred to as miss the social reaction and pushback is almost nearly as many against has four her. Right. Most of the four hers. Our fellow academic doctors who feel like, you know, they need to be addressed. And look you don't want to disrespect someone for what they earn. Sure. But you you start calling people doctor, and there's a medical emergency. And guess what they're gonna run to you for help. But you can't help because you're an academic, Dr not a medical doctor. And if the land the flight, anyway, so I don't I just I ran into it at the airport by paging, Mr. and MRs so and so to the ticket counter only to be told by the wife, it's Dr and MRs and that I was way out of line. Well, how are you supposed to know that? I mean your flight attendant on an airline, and you're supposed to know all your pace, all your people. You know, what their station in life is you know, it was honor boarding pass. And that's why she says that you should have read this. Can't you re blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and yeah, she she just it's Dr this Dr that and apparently she likes hers at a lot of conferences. And I think she was quite a bit disrespectful to the flight attendants who were there to save her life in an emergency. But you know, other than that. It's it's gone viral is so many things these days to a I'm sure this. Will be fodder for more of her lecture. So it's probably win win. Attention. Some of these individuals can get.
